Former Raiders Special Team Coach Avezzano Dies of a Heart Attack in Italy. I am from Lewisville TX, where Coach Avezzano owned a Bar named "Hat Tricks" where he regularily hosted Raider Watching Parties. In fact I have a t-shirt that says Coach Avezzano's Raider Sundays! Once a Raider, always a Raider, his loyalty never faded. Even with all the glory from the Cowboys he repped Oakland instead!
